Yemba is a member of the Grassfields branch of Niger-Congo languages and is spoken in the Western Province of Cameroon by about 300,000 people. There are five main dialects of Yemba, Central Yemba, Eastern Yemba, Western Yemba, Southern Yemba and South Eastern Yemba.
The Yemba alphabet was developed by Maurice Tadadjeu, co-creator of the General Alphabet of Cameroon Languages, and Steven Bird, who between them produced a French-Yemba dictionary.
